  1. Freeze your deer meat until it is slightly firm. Cut your meat against the grain into 1/4" strips.
  2. Add all the ingredients into a pot and heat it up until it simmers. Stir well until the honey and brown sugar is completely dissolved. Turn off heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. Put your deer meat into a gallon size bag or large bowl and add your marinade to it. Allow the meat to marinate for 24 hrs.
  4. Dehydrate your deer strips in your oven or dehydrator at 160 degrees for 5-7 hours or until done. Enjoy your deer jerky!
